    Where is Yemen's "No Fly Zone?"

    IMO, the language is overly broad.
    so is obama's

    I'm referring to direct military intervention aimed at helping the revolution succeed. I oppose it.
    the white house doesn't

    except on the days that it does, the mission appears to change every hour

    Supplying arms is not the same thing as direct military intervention.
    it's dangerously close

    Whether or not the apparent gap between the stated military mission and U.S. policy/communication is really as large as it appears is somewhat uncertain.
    the entire mission is uncertain

    ask the state dept, ask eric holder, ask the italians, germans, french, english, arab league...

    ask congress

    Actions in coming days will establish whether the mission is more than just concerned with a no fly zone.
    actions in coming days will establish a lot more than that

    the world is watching

    Probably the same reason the Right's been all "support our troops" until this. It's all blind politics--follow your side, not your nation.

    march 3:

    obama says gadaffi has "lost legitimacy"

    what legitimacy can a tyrant have to lose?

    obama insists on "consultation with the international community"

    but not with congress and the american people

    President Obama: Qaddafi Has Lost Legitimacy, Must Go | wltx.com

    a very odd, even alien view of international imperatives

    he's got a lot of explaining to do

    he's ending his latin america trip early

    The problem seems to be though, Rocket88. that 'the nation', in the form of the Government, has no clear goal.

    The support might be there if the people knew what they were intended to support.

    no you got it wrong see when the W.M.D.'s fell flat GW changed his tune and made it about (oh we are sooo concerned about what Sadam is doing to his people we need to go to war with him) and it worked so now Obama figured it worked once it'll work again and is using the exact same line to sell this war to the public. WTF!!!

    obama, december, 07:

    "the president does not have power under the constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation"

    biden, may of 07:

    "if he (bush) gives authorization to war without congressional approval i will make it my business to impeach him"

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Adpa5kYUhCA

    these are NOT points, partisans

    they're problems

    Perhaps BHO can resolve these disparities when he returns home to see what his teleprompter has to say.
